If trading is your thing consider being more active on this side. I'm not saying you have to do anything. Only that I feel a lot more comfortable doing deals with people who both post regularly showing they are part of the music community, and those who put their state in their bio so I can see how far something might need to travel.
Speaking of which, Jimmybcool, I am in Phoenix near 24th st & Lincoln, are you close by? Feel free to PM if you want.
